SpRiNg has officially sPruNg!

The moment our first bicycle of the season arrives we welcome spring!  No matter the weather from now on, there is always the notion of sweet weather to come . . . check out our website (what's in store) to see this beauty and at $69 it will be gone before you know it (just like the snow, we hope)!

Shabby Blogs Loves Abode!

If you're a blogger and you haven't been living in a cave for the last couple of years you've probably heard of Shabby Blogs.  And if you're anything like us, you've used and loved their backgrounds, headers, and doo-dads. 

Well, not too long ago the lovely and talented creator of Shabby Blogs, Megan, visited Abode and fell in love with a little set of vintage cards. 

Most of us would have taken the cards home and sent them to friends on special occasions, but not Megan.  No, she turned them into digital art and is offering said art FOR FREE on her website

It put a gigantic smile on my face to visit the website and see a background named after Abode!  

So make sure to head to Shabby Blogs and snag the hot Abode blog couture.  The header, the background and more!  (We're using it right now and we feel fancy.) 

Thanks Megan!

Girls Night In.

I'm dreaming of the night when I can go out to dinner with my friends and not be so weighed down with winter layers that I look like a marshmallow.  So, I decided to host a little girls night in where we can dream of summer and wear little cocktail dresses and I'll blast the heat so high we'll feel like we're in Jamaica. 

If you like this idea than you'll love our vintage cocktail dresses.  Perfect for a night out or a fancy night in. 

I'll put some Pink Martini on the record player and make some delicious appetizers like these crab cakes from Paula Deen.  Yum. 

Here's to hoping the groundhog was spot on this year.

I saw this dresser on Design Sponge and immediately recognized the glass drawer pulls as the ones we sell at Abode.  Look how much a new knob can freshen up a beautiful antique piece!  Adorable.
